This woman. This freakin' woman. I was lucky enough to collaborate with this formidable poet on National Poetry Day Live 2015 when Freak Speak was still a foetus. Now I get to work with her all over again. Say hello to Aliyah Hasinah.
Aliyah Hasinah is a poetic artivist and wannabe historian whose poetry focuses on personal understandings of history, politics and social commentary. In 2015 she set up Herstory LIVE, a live performance event in Birmingham focusing on the histories often whitewashed out of history books. Some of her work is soon to be published in an anthology by Saqi Books. Aliyah is part of Bellows Collective and Ten Letters with work being commissioned by the National Trust, BRAP, Co-Ed Foundation and Wolverhampton Art Gallery.
